Juedes, county treasurer, to appear within twenty days in munici pal court and defend an action entitled John Golz vs. Marathon Connty and Robt. H. Juedes, as County Treasurer of said Marathon County. The plaintiff alleges in his complaint that he is the owner of the ne se, nw se and se se of section 34, town 29, range 8. That each of these descriptions of land were assessed at 1465, which he claims is out of proportion to their true value. The complaint avers: ‘‘That the said assessor knowingly and willfully and fraudulently, and with the intention and design of compelling the plaintiff to pay more than his just proportion of said taxes to be paid in said town for said year 1907, assessed and valued tbe said lands largely in ex cess of tbe true, just and equitable value thereof for taxation, and largely in ex cess of the assessed value of any and all other property in said town in said year belonging to and owned by parties other than the plaintiff, as compared with plaintiff’s said lands, and know ingly, willfully, fraudulently and de signedly over assessed and over-valued said lands owned by the plaintiff, as compared with the other lands iu said town in said year, and assessed and valued all the lands in said town, except the lands of the plaintiff, at much less than the actual assessable value, or tbe value which ordinarily could be obtained for them at private sale, and that there were not any of the lands in said town in sfid year assessed at their correct and true value.” The complainant further states that he made a protest to the town board and that the board arbitrarily raised the assessor’s figures on each descrip tion $345, thereby making the total assessment on each, SBOO. The com plainant refused to pay his taxes and the town treasurer returned the descrip tions to the county treasurer as delin quent, and the same hare been duly advertised as such in the Pilot, to gether with other lands which went into the tax sale today. In addition to the taxes on the property there is due $lO 96 interest and charges on each description. The connty, through its treasurer, is cited to show cause why it should not be enjoined from issuing any tax certif icates upon the land. The complain ant lives about three and one-half miles east of the city on a cross road running from the Mclntosh to the Smith road. He is considered a wealthy farmer, but it is said, has made more or less trouble for the assessors of his town in the past several years. Fred Paulus is the man who made the assessment and has held ofSceJpr several years without opposi tion. Other farmers living in the town have made no complaints about his assessment of their property. The com plainant has engaged the law firm of E L. & F. E. Bump to prosecute his action. PETER SICARD. Peter Sicard, one of the earliest pio neers and well known men of the county, died May 10 at his home in the village of Mosinee. His neath was the result of a paralytic stroke suffered about three years ago. For some years prior to his death he had been totally blind. Deceased was born in Three Rivers, Can., March 21, 1835. He attended school there with Jos. Dessert, the two ever since being warm acquaintances. Mr. Sicard settled in Mosinee in 1855 and that Tillage had been his home ever since. He followed lumbering up to 1882 and then embarked in the mer cantile business, but after a year bad to give it up on account of failing eye sight. He was united in marriage to Miss Charlotte Mitchell in Amherst in 1867 and three children were born of that union, A. N., of Ft. Smith, Ark.; O. L., residing in Oklahoma, and Mrs. M. £. LaDu, of Mosinee. For many years he held the office of town and village treasurer and was a r.an who was held in the highest esti mation by all who knew him. The funeral was held Thursday from the residence, Rev. Jaquith officiating and it was one of the largest ever con ducted in that village. ANNUAL MEETING OF BANKERS.

Congressman Morse last Friday se cured an appropriation for a starter on a government building for Merrill; 47,500 was appropriated for a site and now we may look for the most exciting soup that ever took place in our sister city. To avoid this, the Pilot would suggest that a half dozen sites be num bered, and the Lumbers placed in a hat, shaken op and the last number drawn be chosen as the site. This will save lots r ' trouble and harsh sayings that will not look nice in print. Stevens Point also received an approp riation of •©,COO for a government building. Throughout the state, the amount to be received figure* up to nearly a half a million dollars. If j usa u JBis Pilot. TO BUILD IN MERRILL The Pilot a short time ago announced the fact that Paul Of bert had resigned as president of the Northern Milling Cos., and from active interest in the affairs of that institution. Since then he has decided to locate in Merrill. The Lincoln Milling and Elevator Cos. has been incorporated with a capital stock of $35,000. Associated with Mr. Gebert in the enterprise will be Jacob and Leo Gensman of this city. The officers of the organization will be Mr. Gebert, president; Jacob Gensman, vice presi dent ; Leo. Gensman, secretary and treasurer. Merrill has been without a grist mill for some time, much to the inconveni ence of farmers having grain products to sell. A short time ago some business men started a movement to build a mill, and SIO,OOO had been subscribed toward the project. A meeting was recently called to discuss the matter and Mr. Gebert appeared before the meeting and presented a proposition, of which the Merrill Advocate says : “It was a straight forward, business proposition and briefly was this : That upon the assurance of the hearty co operation and good will of the citizens of Merrill and the relinquishment of the present project, he with others im mediately interested, would build a complete, modernly equipped flouring mill its approximate cost to be $35,000 and have it in operation withiq ninety days. It is needless to say that his proposition was accepted and that the loyal support of Merrill citizens will be given him. Mr. Gebert has studied the situation carefully and believes that Merrill offers an exceptional field for a milling project. The local subscribers willingly relinquished their interests, Mr. Gebert having signified his willing ness to finance it alone.” In addition to the above the Merrill Star of later date says : “Contracts have been let for the mill machinery and power. The power is to be what is known as ‘producer gas’ power,—a gasoline engine that pro duces its own gas as it uses it. “Flans and specifications for the building will be ready the first of next week, when advertisements for bids will be inserted in the local papers, and local contractors will be given the preference where possible. “The location decided upon is the west side of Genesse street, north of the railroad track, on the site of the Wright Lumber Co.’s old dry kiln, thus having the benefit of the spur track for loading and unloading of cars, which is an item of much importance. “Mr. Gebert expects to have the plant running by Sept. Ist, if it is a possible thiDg.” The company received its charter last Thursday and it is expected that before many weeks pass active building operations will be under way. It is the intention of the concern to carry on a general milling and grain business. As soon as contractors are ready to begin building, Messrs. Gebert and Leo Gene man and their families will move to Merrill. NORTHERN MILLING CO. At a meeting of the Northern Milling company, held on Wednesday evening, C. G. Krueger was elected president of the company in place of Paul Gebert, who recently resigned to enter into business elsewhere. At this meeting C. H. Hooker was also elected secre tary, treasurer and manager. This in stitution is one of the growing ones of our city, it having recently increased its capital stock to $50,000, which is en entirely paid in. FINDS FORTUNE IN A SOCK- A remarkable discovery was made ou Wednesday of last week when Mrs. Rose Tovey Doyle discovered up Awards of S6BO in bills and coin tied up in a sock in the attic of an old house on the Tovey farm at Stockton station. This old house was erected many years ago opposite the postoffice at Stockton sta tion. After the late James Tovey erected the large and handsome home now occupied by the family the house stood vacant for many years except as occasionally occupied by some tran sient resident of village. Later it was removed to the rear of the Tovey home and used for a summer kitchen. A short time ago it was decided to join it onto the main residence. While rummaging among the trash of the attic, Mrs. Doyle gave the sock a toss to one side and was surprised to hear it jingle. She picked it up again and discovered it contained a roll of bills and some coins, the whole amounting to little upwards of S6BO. It is sup posed that the money must have been hid there by a grandmother of the family who died many years ago at an advanced age. She was a little childish and forgetful toward the last, a condi tion which probably accounts for the strange resting place of the money all these years. There was only a small door leading up to the attic and this probably accounts for the rubbish not having been handled over more often in the past.—Stevens Point Journal. SUPPER TONIGHT. There will be a strawberry short-cake supper this evening, commencing at 5;30 o’clock at the M. E. church, given by the ladies of that church. Supper 25 cents. Everybody invited.

Dickens and Under sheriff John Sell were called to Spencer Wednesday to investigate the death of Mrs. Henry Moon whose husband found her that morning lying with a bullet hole in the head. The coroner after learning the facts, decided that an in quest was unnecessary. They for a year past had been living on a farm east of the village. They were married two years ago, and like many other people their married life had its ups and downs. The husband states that they often quarreled bnt never violently. She appears to have been a peevish, fretful woman, easly excited and imagining that her husband was absenting himself from home too much. These deductions are drawn from statements by her husband, her parents and other relatives and neigh \ bors. The couple had quarreled on Tuesday evening and again on the morning of the tragedy. The man has been working in a saw mill in the vil lage and when he started for work that morning she asked him to stay home. He informed her that he must work.' He had gone bnt a short distance from the house when he heard a shot and summoning a neighbor the two went into the home and found the woman lying on the floor, with blood flowing from a wound in her head and a .32 calibre revolver lying by her side. A physician was summoned, but the woman lived only a short time. She was twenty-five years of age, and a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Dicken son, highly respected residents of that sectiob. The funeral was held Satur day. 1 VOTE FOR A NAME. It is never the thoughtful, successful b > mess man who ruthlessly disregard the wishes of that public from whom I/* receives his sustenance and his profi it is, as a matter of course, condesceno ing oti tfce part of that contingent of Wausau’s citizenship who reached this territory early mough to establish their right ana title to the city’s present opulence to admit the source of their wealth—pine. The Fairs and Floods and O’Briens, of California, whose de scendants now live in New York, Paris, and London, often admitted having lived in close proximity to the Com stock lode, the source of their millions. They were magnanimous enough to express both sorrow and contempt for the poor devils who, in an early day, were their partners in adversity, but they always owned up to the source of their wealth—the gold mine. It is one of the cheering, helpful, inspiring things in life to have a rich man own up now and then and tell just how he got it. Of course it was only $1 26 an acre, but there were’nt any droves of land seekers then. Those who cam** and had an eye to windward pulled down the persimmons, whicn ought to be glory enough for them. 1 came, myself, in an early day but my revenue from pine is not big enough to make me ignore the wishes or even the whims of Wausau’s patriotic pat rons of the trolley line, whose present terminus is Rothschild, alias “Pine Pari^!” This brings me to that point where I desire to say that the unpremeditated and unceremonious manner in whiph this new name, or no name, for tnat grand old haunt has been precipitated on a defenseless public is without pre cedent in audacity. They may own the property but it is a public park or at least quasi-public, and the public should have been taken into the confi dence of those who want a name for this old resort. It is not too late to do good and to appease the wrath of those whose ssnsi-/ bilities have been crushed in the nam ing of this park. I respectfully sug gest that it be thrown open to the pub lic ; that a vote of the public be taken upon it ; that ballot boxes be stationed in the pavillion or at the newspaper offices or at the street car company’s office, and that everybody be given a primary and final chance for expres sion on this all important and all ab. sorbing proposition. The street car company can well af ford to make this concession to the public, and 1 venture to say that after the proper details are arranged and perfected for this exercise of the fran chise a satisfactory conclusion will have been reached. The intelligence of our people will produce a name that will be at once classical and appropri ate. Give the newspaper men and the professional men, the teachers in the city schools, the scholars of the city, the ladies of the literary societies and the clergymen an opportunity to chris ten this delightfnl spot and everybody will be pleased and proud of the result. “Pine park” is no name at all. “Pine park” is suggestive of a clump of jack pines in the neighborhood of Squedunk. Let us all have a chance to vote. Ewing park would mean some thing. ft would be a monument to one of the brightest, most progressive and successful young men in Northern W isconsin, and many of the Indian names suggested would be appropriate and acceptable. “Pine park” has a sort of goce-in-ness or gone-up-ness flavor about it that is suggestive of de cay. It is a kind of companion piece to “Wood Pulp park,” which is also in appropriate and discordant. L O. G. S START A FARM COLONY.

At present some city papers, and some people, are making complaints because the street railway company has dabbed the Rothschild grove, Pine park It don’t sonnd well in their ears, and they are offering all kinds of sugges tions as to what they term more appro priate names—something more digni fied. Some have suggested Indian names. If there is any possibility of the street railway company changing the name to an Indian handle, and the chances are slight, what’s the matter with Wan-ba-ka-nish park ? Waubakanish was an old Chippewa warrior who roamed this territory for over one hundred years and this par ticular section for over half a century. Do not let it be inferred that he was in any way related to the long lived Methoseleh. He was born in 1753 and died in the winter or early spriDg of 1873, making him 120 years old. To the whites who settled early in this sec tion be was known as “Old Waba.” According to the laws of the Indian tribes when one of their number reaches an advanced age, he is turned out to die or banished from the tribe. If he is unable to procure his fond and care for himself he is “nepoed” or killed. Old Waba was banished from his tribe in 1858, but through help from the whites he was suffered to live for twenty years after, and perhaps would have lived longer had it not been for a dose of poison administered to him. He was a familiar figure in this section whenever the Chippewas and Winnebagos were at peace. His father was a Chippewa and his mother a Pottawato nie and he was known as the warrior chief of the two tribes. His connection with these two ribes made him a powerful factor in the councils of war or peace. In the massacre of Ft. Dearborn, now Chica go, in 1812 the Chippewas were led in part by Waba, and it was through his influence in later years that th. four great tribes of Central and Northern Wisconsin—Chippewas, Menominees, Winnebagos and Pottawatomies—were prevented from joining the .Sacs and Foxes under Black Hawk in 1832. After the Ft. Dearborn massacre old Waba became the trusted friend of the wl. tes and no further depredations were com mitted upon the settlers by his tribes. For a long time he made bis home on the Little Eau Pleine and Plover rivers and was well known among: the pioneer river men who rafted lumber down the Wisconse from the Wausau or Big Bull Falls mills. He had one son, another familiar figure in this section in an early day, Big Pappoose. The latter was a tower of flesh and strength and a “heap bad Injun’’ when under the influence -of “skit-a-wa-boo.” He died after drink ing a quait of alcohol and sleeping out on a logging road when the mercury was below zero. Waba also had a daughter of the name of She-mock-wa, called She-mock for short. In the last years of his life old Waba was totally blind, and his daughter, it was generally supposed, gave him a dose of poison. She-mock was lame and walked with a cane and when beg ging always asked for five cents, thus gaining the sobriquet, “Old Five Cents.” She lies buried down in the town of Bergen, the silent and sluggish waters of the Little E&u Pleine passing within a stone’s throw of her grave Old Waba’s bones repose somewhere out on the banks of the Plover river, the exact location not being known. The name Waubakanish park might be offensive to some—they might stutter in trying to pronounce itr— but it is at least suggestive of an Indian who had much to do Vith the early history of Wisconsin.

Address The Even ing Wisconsin Cos., Poet Card Dept., Milwaukee. Wis. m5-3w THOUGHTFUL KINDNESS AND FORGETFUL SELFISHNESS. The following is from the pen of W. O. Carrier, president of Carroll college, and was written for the Masonic Tid ings, of Milwaukee, viz: In much of our travels these days we see many examples of both. Not long ago an old gentleman, by mistake, put into tbe pay-box of a street ear in one of our smaller cities, a quarter instead of a nickel. His appearance, while cul tured, indicated that he could hardly, afford to lose the extra amount. A gen tleman—a stranger—sitting in that end of the car, seeing this mistake, asked the motorman, who was also the man in charge of the car, if he might collect the fares irom the next four persons entering tbr ear and return them to the man ma.ring the mistake. It may seem a small thing, but it was greatly appreciated, and won our ad miration for his thoughtful kindness. We were riding one day on a through train, late in the afternoon, when a lit tlq child, of perhaps a “year or more, became very fretful, much to the an noyance of many of the passengers. The tired mother, who had doubtless been traveling all day, was trying without avail to quiet the little child, hut there were expressions and remarks that only embarrassed her the more. It was then that a gentleman, with a winning way, came across the aisle, persuaded the little child into his strong arms, and as he walked the aisle for a time, quieted and amused the child, giving rest to a tired mother, and we hope a lesson to some impatient ones, by his example of thoughtful kindness, and also showed us how beautiful it is to bear the burden of others. Others would have done so, perhaps, had they been more thoughtful. Again we saw an elderly German woman, who was a passenger on a train in Northern Wisconsin. She could noN understand the names of the towns as called out by the indifferent brake man, nor could she read the names on the passing depots. She became very nervous aDd solicitous for fear she might be carried by the place where she wished to stop. A young lady teacher gd the train, observing the situ ation, went over and sat with her and made her sure that she would see her oft at the right place. That, too, was thoughtful kindness. At a noon luncheon some time ago in a private dining room of a hotel, some nine or ten of us were gathered be cause of business interests. The lunch eon had been arranged by one of the men with the hotel management, for a regular course dinner. When the waiters brought in the meat course, each person was served with roast beef, It chanced to be Friday, and it so hap pened that the religious faith of oue of the party necessitated his declining the meat He quietly put it aside and asked the waiter if he might have eggs. Immediately the gentleman sitting neri did the same thing, not for conscience sake, but because he was thoughtful to see that there be no distinct on that might lead in any way to the embar rassment of justone in so large a num ber. That, it seemed to me, was thoughtful kindness. But in contrast to this, it was my fortune to take a midnight train and reach my destination at three o’clock in the morning The coach was well filled with people, all of whom were trying to rest and sleep for the duties of the next day, when a half dozen or more high school basket ball team boys came aboard the train, and for more than an hour, with no regard for the rights of others, made the time hideous with sopgs and jesting, which were of edification to none, but an annoyance to ail. We do not term this meanness, but it was thoughtless selfishness. Oftimes men come into a sleeping car late at night or rise early in the morning, and by loud talk and need less conversation awake other passen gers who have a right to quietness. We are impressed that it would be better for the world if there was more thought ful kindness and less thoughtless sel fishness. Wilbur O. Carrier.
